Business model

Unmatched expertise

We are a leader in leveraging technologies in gene editing and gene modulation with a demonstrated ability to develop and commercialise innovative applications.

The expertise and know-how, which we have developed over several decades, underpins our portfolio of tools and services which scientists to gain a greater understanding of gene function, identify genetic drivers behind human disease, deliver biotherapeutics and cellular and gene therapies for precision medicine.

  • We are focused on commercialising the application of gene editing and gene modulation to accelerate scientific innovation and biopharmaceutical drug development.

  • We have access to a variety of cell engineering technologies, which means we can take a technology-agnostic approach when providing our customers with a cell engineering solution.

  • In turn, the knowledge that we gain through these deep customer relationships informs our own product development, allowing us to create the market-aligned innovative solutions that not only differentiate the company’s offering, but also fuel development of the next wave of precision medicine
